Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]
Low, agile, and deadly, the BMD-1 is perfect for close range hit and run tactics, relying on its camouflage and low profile to sneak up behind targets, then fire a cannon double shot and missile into an unsuspecting enemy vehicle. Able to use low hills and rocks the way other larger vehicles cannot, the BMD-1 can easily maneuver around a flank to wreak havoc.
Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]
Pros[edit | edit source]
- Low profile
- Gun/missile combination offers a large amount of burst fire, compared to other vehicles.
- Good mobility
Cons[edit | edit source]
- Zero effective armor
- Poor gun depression
- Low muzzle velocity on 73mm cannon
Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]
Upgrading to the 5D20 Diesel Engine will improve mobility around the battlefield, to better complement the vehicle's low stature and high camo rating. Upgrading to the "Malyutka" ATGM will further increase firepower, allowing for rapid fire missile and cannon salvos.
